Are you a freelance translator? If so, you probably know that one of the hardest, if not most time consuming, aspects of running your own translation business is finding clients.
As a professional translator, you never stop marketing because you never know when a current client will drop you or stop requesting work. Even if you have a steady stream of regular clients, you are always looking to “trade up,” that is, increase the amount you charge, and it’s a lot easier to increase your rates with new clients rather than with current ones.
“Translator’s Market – The GIANT Book of Translation Agencies: Find Work and Get Paid as a Freelance Translator” is a book that will help you find new translation clients.
It will make it easier for you to find potential clients, contact them, and offer your services.
